A No-Brainer, I'll SHOW You Why
This year's Black Friday sale, which is going on for at least the next 2 days, was a no-brainer for me.
I'll SHOW you why, but first, a quick background story.
I joined WA in 2015 and at the time I didn't know how I would be able to afford the extra $49 a month. It felt like a huge gamble.
That same year, Black Friday came around and I was at a point where I was a bit more familiar with WA, affiliate marketing, and the opportunity in front of me.
Yet still, there was no way I was going to be able to afford the extra $300+ for yearly on top of monthly bills, expenses, etc.
Yet I found a way - legally lol.
This upgrade meant more than just a year of access to some training. For me it meant I was going to go all in for one year and see where this thing leads.
I can proudly say that it was the right move and paid off in a big way:
I chose to promote WA at the time and it took me about 9 months before my first payout of a whomping $61. That was a lot of time and effort for $61.
But as you can see, all that time and effort snowballed into more and more income over time! The earnings above are form WA alone and not other companies I was affiliated with.
(Pro Tip: If you haven't experienced any results just yet or aren't where you expected to be after a certain time frame - don't just "hang in there" - get brutally honest with yourself. How are you spending your time when you sit down to work on your business? Are you in a winning niche? Have you finished the training? Do you jump from opportunity to opportunity? Are your expectations unrealistic? What actions can you take today to get to where you want to be?)
I recently moved away from the affiliate marketing business model but I'm still on WA every single day.
That's because I've been working with local businesses in my area to create and manage websites for their business.
I utilize the tools here to run my business - the hosting, the security, the technical support, the 50 websites, the domain names, etc. I manage the core of my business right here.
Businesses actually paying me for my skill set? What!?
As time goes on, I'm getting more confident and have increase my prices. (I sent out a $3,500 proposal today for web design alone).
Utilizing the tools and training here, you can do this as well. I leveraged Jay's webinar series from earlier this year. Here's the first of the series: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/classes/core-metrics-of-rank
If there's enough interest or any at all, lol, I wouldn't mind creating some training on how I'm personally getting sales, growing, and running my business offering web design and SEO to local businesses.
There are business owners out there that are willing to pay you for the very skills taught inside of WA. If you can find business owner(s) at the right time, with the right budget/resources, and who have a need for your services - then you can make a lot of money doing what I do.
Let me know if interested, I would enjoy creating some training or series of training further diving into this.
Other than that, the affiliate income from WA and a few other sources is still coming in like clockwork.
This is why Black Friday at WA is always a no-brainer. It's also why it's one of the smartest investments you can make.
Give yourself a year. Leverage the tools, training, and people you have access to. And do the work.
OK, I've got an ecommerce website to finish up for a client!
